ReadySoft Incorporated was a video game development company founded in 1987, in Toronto, Canada, by Canadian programmer and software engineer David Foster, ex-Digital Solutions Inc co-founder (after working seven years as a senior programmer, from 1977 to 1984, at Richvale Telecommunications Ltd[2][3][4], a.k.a. RTC, a company founded by Peter Smith[5], a former repair man which transformed its modest TV store into a company with over fifty employees and a seven figure gross, David Foster co-founded in 1984, Digital Solutions Inc, with its partner Victor Kass, former RTC vice-president[6], producing primarily productivity software[7][8][9] for the Commodore 64 and 128, and some for the Amiga near the end of the company's life, in 1987).

In late 1988, the company acquired the rights to Dragon's Lair from Don Bluth's Sullivan Bluth Studios, initially publishing a conversion for the Amiga which instantly became a hit and was ported to several platforms, including Sega's Mega-CD and Saturn consoles.

In 1996[10] David Foster sold the company to Malofilm Communications Inc (later Behavior Entertainment Inc[11]), one of Canada's leading integrated entertainment companies of the time and in 1997 founded Digital Leisure Inc, which shortly after acquired the rigths to the Dragon's Lair franchise and continues to publish titles on modern platforms today.
